Connecting energy systems and industrial processes for maximum efficiency at HANNOVER MESSE

hannnnHANNOVER MESSE, one of the world's leading trade shows for industrial technology, will be held in Hanover, Germany from 23–27 April 2018, focusing on power grid, energy storage systems etc and exploring the opportunities for digital integration of the energy industry

The Integrated Energy Plaza at the HANNOVER MESSE’s energy show aims to bring together all the major players in the integrated energy business. Energy producers, power grid operators, operators of energy storage systems, stakeholders from the sustainable mobility sector and industry leaders of digitisation across the world will be present during the event.

Among the exhibitors will be Germany’s GP Joule GmbH, a renewable-sector company. The key to energy sector integration is to have customer-friendly charging infrastructure, intelligent charging management systems, automated billing and payment systems and integration of generation and storage assets into virtual power plants. “As well as solutions for these challenges, we will be using the energy show to demonstrate the interrelationship between infrastructure and efficient green hydrogen applications such as in cars, buses, trains and industrial contexts,” said Timo Bovi, director governmental relations and public affairs at GP Joule.

“The efficient integration of energy systems and industrial processes promises major economic benefits,” commented Matthias Zelinger, managing director VDMA Power Systems. “Success in the energy market is about keeping production costs as low as possible, which is why stand-alone plants are increasingly becoming active components of ever more complex integrated energy systems.”

“This is enabled by increasingly data-driven digital monitoring and modelling of energy flows within the integrated energy system as a whole. As the energy market becomes more and more decentralised, we will need innovative technologies which make the energy system more flexible, which intelligently integrate the sectors involved, and which support new market entrants,” Zelinger added.

If industrial companies succeed in actively managing energy production, consumption and storage across all energy sources, they will be able to achieve significant energy cost savings by optimising their operations and systematically avoiding expensive load peaks. This presents rich opportunities for all companies involved in the digitisation of the energy sector. Seven2one Informationssysteme GmbH, provider of software to enable predictive management and optimisation of integrated energy systems, will display its energy generation, consumption and storage solutions during the show.

In addition, the German Renewable Energy Federation (BEE) will be running a group pavilion and four stand-up workshops to facilitate dialogue between industry representatives from all around the world and the German renewable energy sector. BEE experts will be available to answer questions on the energy transition and renewable expansion at the pavilion.
